Hero piece A tuxedo suit

The Daily Telegraph - Telegraph Magazine - - NEWS -

Katharine Hep­burn, Mar­lene Di­et­rich, Char­lotte Ram­pling… Think of im­pos­si­bly refned women and the thread that ties

them to­gether is great tai­lor­ing. Cate Blanchett took up the man­tle most re­cently in her black tuxedo with echoes of Hel­mut New­ton. De­spite its menswear

ori­gins, there’s a rela xed fem­i­nin­ity to this easy cut, es­pe­cially with an un­done silk blouse and rose-tinted

Gucci lenses. Saint Lau­rent and Stella McCart­ney do the best cuts, while Topshop has a whole sec­tion of its web­site ded­i­cated to the cause.
